Why is Teacher's Notebook THE Best Site 4 Teachers?

Teacher's Notebook is a drama free(- yes, I said it),  No hassle, No silly Pricing Rules, No Greedy Charges for listing or membership, No threatening agreements to be followed, No Cut Throat sellers trying to bully other teacher sellers because of GREED Website!!!  It is a venue that actually CARES about the profession and the students that are touched by the products sold on the site! Owned by the nicest people that only praise teacher sellers for how wonderful they are for doing what they do to touch the lives of the students by sharing and creating great products...  I appreciate TN so much for their kindness and genuine compassion about children and us teachers. 

 Other similar Venues, charge high fees and boast and brag and boast and brag all about money, money, money... infact, a recent newsletter was sent out THIS week that actually hinted to teacher sellers to NOT offer So many freebies because certain greedy sellers were complaining that too many buyers only come to the site for the freebies and never buy anything..Really?  Are you serious?  We are TEACHERS!  WE SHARE! The economy is terrible.. I just got sick to my stomach when I read this newsletter this week.  That is just taking it too far.  Now there are "rules" about what kind of Freebies you should be offering.  I don't think so..  Greed and Money is the "root to all evil" and it sounds like some of the sellers/owner are losing touch with reality and are obsessed with the push to make more and more and more money...OFF OF TEACHERS!!!   Shameful.. 

Now back to Teachers Notebook:  They are Giving Away something Super Huge, Y'all

A concluding writing activity is also included that has the students write whether or not they think Dr. King's Dream has come true. I have included a full Teacher information page that gives you an outline of how I conduct this lesson to make it EASY on you and hopefully give you ideas on how you can incorporate this Super Mini lesson into your daily activities whether it be for Black History month or in observance of MLK's Birthday. I love lessons that involve the easy use of technology like this~very engaging!
